I’ve had an obsession with making a beautiful and healthy luminous base for my face. Though my cheeks have a natural flush on its own I enjoy playing with different finishes and shades. These are the top three I own that are my top favourites in my cosmetics collection.

Alima Pure Blush

Old Package and well used

Alima Pure Satin Matte Blush in Mimosa ≡ Alima Pure is my number one brand for foundation. I also wanted a mineral blush out of curiosity. Mimosa seemed the most flattering to my skin tone. This is never patchy on my skin. Even though it’s a loose powder I have never had an issue with it falling all over the place. Which is unusual for me. I make a mess no matter what I do. Alima also offers a shimmery finish blush collection as well as satin matte

  • Price is $24.00
  • Finish is matte
  • Formulation is loose powder
  • Shade is described as rosy peach
  • Vegan-friendly
  • Gluten-free

Hourglass Blush

Hourglass Cosmetics Ambient Lighting Blush in Diffused Heat ≡ I fought off buying one of these products for so long. But after seeing it being used on Pheobe Tonkin I broke down and bought it. This blush is so friggin buttery and blendable. I’m a bit bonkers for this blush. It leaves so a beautiful glow on the skin.  If you like glamming on a regular then get this blush.  Just use a light hand. This is pigmented.

  • Price is $35.00
  • Finish is radiant
  • Formulation is pressed powder
  • Shade is described as a vibrant poppy with a halo finish
  • Gluten-free

Honest Beauty Blush

Honest Beauty Crème Blush in Truly Thrilling ≡ My grandmother got me hooked on cream blushes ages ago. But the ones she often used left a tacky finish. So I always gravitated towards powdered blush. This does not feel tacky at all. This blends so effortlessly into the skin. There is no iridescent bits to it. No sheen. It looks completely natural.

  • Price is $22.00
  • Finish is natural Formulation is cream
  • Shade is described is described as a soft pink
  • Gluten-free

What are your favourite blushes? Is there a brand you tend to favour more than others? I think if I were to go on a shopping spree for blush products it would be all three of these brands. Also let me know whether or not you want to see swatches next time I do a blog about products like this. I’m always a bit shaky when it comes to taking photographs of swatches.
